New "Doctor Who" specials on BBC America

For the last couple of years (since Matt Smith became the Doctor) BBC America has run specials that lead up to the new episodes.

Well, now for the new season the specials are coming out. Starting Aug 4 we get the first special - "The Science of Doctor Who" which airs at 9:00 PM (EDT).

The following week BBC America airs the new special "The Women of Doctor Who" (airing Aug, 11 at 9:00 PM (EDT))

As of now they have not listed any other specials on their schedule but I wouldn't be surprised if there was at least one more.

But we know what comes after they run the new specials - new "Doctor Who". So start looking for them to air soon - however BBC and BBC America has not placed the show on the schedule yet but in both instances the schedule only goes up to two to three weeks.

 

EDIT:

Since I've posted this I've discovered that there are more specials coming up.

Doctor Who actress Mary Tamm (Romana) Dies Aged 62

I am sadden to report that once again we have lost someone in the Doctor Who community. A month after the news of Caroline John (Liz Shaw) passing, we have lost another actress that played a companion on Doctor Who, Mary Tamm. You will remember her for her role as the original Romana in the Tom Baker era. She introduced us to the Time Lady companion, Romana in 'The Key to Time' series of 1978 to 1979.

27 Years today!

"Today marks 27 years since the organization was formed."

That is quite an achievement Louis.

It's a while since I posted a Blog item here but I feel i should use this moment to thank Louis for all his hard work through over the years.

I'm sure Louis would be the first to say this isn't just his anniversary and would thank Ken , James and all the Podshock Correspondents during these years - alongside of course - the Subscribers, Readers and Listenners of Podshock.

Keep up the great work Louis as we head towards the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who

Cheers, daveac

Twenty Seven Today

This is what has become an annual posting here on the 18th of June each year… The Gallifreyan Embassy anniversary. Today marks 27 years since the organization was formed. What can I say that I haven't already said in my previous anniversary postings? Yeah, I can't believe so much time has passed… I believe I had said it before. Perhaps these photos that I took last week on the Long Island Raid Road say it all. We have come a long way since 1985. I never thought then that I would see train posters referencing Doctor Who in them as these do for BBC America.
